Subject:        The Murder of Gonzago

Tony Burton writes:

"In the case of "Hamlet," the ghost is presumably "real," i.e., it can
be seen by others than Hamlet himself, but the exact meaning if its
instructions and the safety and rightness of following them, both remain
doubtful."

Exactly right.

Comment:        Re: SHK 15.0956 The Murder of Gonzago

In response to Sean Lawrence, you wrote, ". . . I think ascertaining
God's Will is the central intellectual problem in the play - both for
the audience and for Hamlet. And that's what I think the play from 4.4
on is primarily about." What specific part of the text do you have in
mind as evidence for this intriguing statement?
